When it comes to minimizing patient exposure to ionizing radiation, our goal is always to provide the highest quality diagnostic images with the least amount of radiation possible for each patient” said Kurt Schellhas, M.D., National Medical Director, CDI. “Our team has many safeguards in place to ensure patient safety within our centers. The fact that every CDI center with CT in Minnesota is participating in the American College of Radiology’s (ACR) Dose Index Registry (DIR) and has taken the Image Wisely pledge reaffirms our commitment to minimize and manage radiation dose for our patients. It also makes CDI and Insight Imaging one of the largest providers participating in the ACR DIR program both locally and nationally.” All of the Minnesota CDI locations that offer CT imaging are dedicated to “Image Wisely” including: Alexandria, Burnsville, Coon Rapids, Eden Prairie, Maple Grove, Maplewood, Minnetonka, Mendota Heights, St. Cloud, St. Louis Park, West St. Paul, Willmar and Woodbury.
